Even those naked babies don’t understand why daddy is wearing a little boys’ outfit!!

In another creepy edition of “Who Wore it Best,” a grown-ass man is dressed up like a little kid. They’re even posing the same!!

Artist Charles Joseph Natoire painted “Portrait of Louis Dauphin of France with a Plan of the Siege of Tournai” (left) in 1747, while William Hogarth painted “William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland” (right) in 1732.

So many guys just REFUSE to grow up these days.

Man up, boys! You can’t stay young forever!!!!

U Penn Founded by Smarty Pants BJ Franky Franks

Lurning is in da haus!!!!!! Lolololol.

Benjamin Franklin was searching for a site where he could open a public academy for higher learning in the Philly area. He discovered that a charity school in the area lacked funding and was vacated, so it was the best option for BJ’s new project.

Unlike other schools around (Harvard, William and Mary, and Yale), BJ Franky Franks wants this institution to offer more than just religious education. He’s proposing the curriculum also include practical skills and arts.

As much as we think this is a great idea, these good deeds don’t disguise the fact that he has an illegitimate child.

If doing nice things washed away sins, we’d be the friggin’ Pope!

Samuel Adams, Beer Maker, Rides Daddy’s Coattails into Public Office

WARNING! This MASShole is a serious HAWT mess alert!!!!

Drunky Adam’s daddy is a very important Boston political figure who is heavily involved in an organization called the Boston Caucus. With the Boston Caucus’s backing, Drunky Adams landed a job as a clerk in the Boston market. 

Before daddy got him the sweet gig, our sources say that Drunky Adams lost all the money his daddy loaned him and, after that FAIL, began working as a partner in the family’s malthouse. 

So, just to recap, Drunky Adams squandered away his money, made a ton of beer, and now has a job in politics because of daddy???

Sounds like a true American to us!!!

Woot Woot!! War of Austrian Succession Ends!

war of austrian succession

The big ass war over in Europe (the one that leaked into America with a series of military attacks called King George’s War) has come to an end with the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle.

The A-L-C stated that Maria Theresa, who sparked the war, only had to give up the territory of Silesia to Prussia. Besides that, everything basically ended in status-quo-ante-bellum or, for those of you who speak English, the normal state of things before the war.

While everyone is pretty happy with this arrangement, the people of France are NOT.

SHOCKER. We thought the French were such happy people!!!! LOL.

Despite Louis XV of France’s victories in the war, he has given up everything he conquered to Austria because he’s happy with the land he already rules. Everyone in Europe thinks this is nice of him, but his own people are PISSED. They feel like they worked hard and got nothing out of it.

Cheer up, France. Go eat a baguette and cry into your champagne… you’ll feel better.

Ha!

The College of New Jersey AKA Princeton Founded

princeton

Lordy, Lordy!!! Dirty Jersey actually WANTS to learn??? 

New Light Presbyterians have founded the institution in order to train ministers. Right now the place of higher learning is in Elizabeth, New Jersey, but we hear it will be moving to Princeton in the next decade.

We don’t know why any holy person would want to live in such a filth hole. This is probably the Devil’s doing!!!

You couldn’t pay us enough to go!!

Who Wore it Best?!?!!?

These trained models even make animal fur look innocent! Amazeballs!!!

Artist Jean-Marc Nattier painted both of these models as Diana, the Roman goddess of hunting. 

Hunting hearts, probably! LOLz.

We love that Madame Bouret (bottom) is smiling with her eyes, but we can’t stop looking at Mary Adelaide’s (top) elegant hands.

Who do U think wore it best?!!?

Ermahgerd! War in America Over a WOMAN!!!

maria theresa

Get over it, bb! Women should have equal rights, too!!!!

In Europe, the War of the Austrian Succession started when the Holy Royal Emperor, Charles VI, passed away and his daughter, Maria Theresa, succeeded his place on the throne. France doesn’t believe a woman should be in power, so they’ve been fighting to overthrow her. England, on the other hand, actually has a brain and has been fighting to keep her there. 

Now the war has moved across the Atlantic in a series of military operations being called King George’s WarFrench and English colonies are murdering the crap out of each other, but it’s too soon to tell who is winning.

Who knew France would be SO threatened by a vagina!

What do U think?? Should women be in power?????

Boston’s Faneuil Hall Opens to the Public

faneuil hall

We better get the horses ready, cuz we want to see this in the flesh!!

After years of talking about it, Boston has opened a public marketplace donated by wealthy resident Peter Faneuil. Artist John Smibert built Faneuil Hall in the style of an English country market, with the first floor as a market and second floor as an assembly room. 

Our sources claim that most mASSholes didn’t even want the market and it barely gained a majority vote!!!

Morons. Don’t they know - the more places to shop, the better!!!

BJ Franky Franks Heats Up With New Invention

Filed under: 1741 > Benjamin Franklin > 1740s >

franklin stove

Boyfriend knows how to get shiz done!

Benjamin Franklin’sFranklin Stove" has a hooded front and an airbox in the back, which allows for more efficient fire. It uses a quarter of firewood and produces twice as much heat. We hear he’s been approached to patent the invention, but he turned it down because he wants everyone to benefit from it without making a profit.

WTF??? Who turns down money???

Maybe he just made the stove to burn evidence of more extramarital affairs.

Ha!
